A survey of Hardball Hosting

We, at survivingyourcurrent.com, have selected 'Hardball Hosting' to be our current domain name and hosting vendor. Hence we deem that this succinct review of 'Hardball Hosting' is perchance going to be quite useful for other individuals from all around the Globe who are looking for domain name and web hosting services. We state individuals from all over the World, since the simple fact is that 'Hardball Hosting' currently furnishes domain and hosting services in multiple data center facility locations: in the United States of America (Chicago, IL), in England (Maidenhead, 20 miles outside London), in Scandinavia (Stockholm) and in Australia (Sydney). Thus, encompassing practically the whole Globe. At least as far as the Internet is concerned. So, here is what you could anticipate from 'Hardball Hosting' in a nutshell:

Shared Web Site Hosting Packages

The first detail we, at survivingyourcurrent.com, have discerned is the reasonable prices of the shared web hosting solutions provided by 'Hardball Hosting'. Shared doesn't seem very good, does it? Well, that's what it is called: shared hosting. The good news here is that the webspace hosting accounts provided by 'Hardball Hosting' are driven by a custom created, state-of-the-art cloud web hosting platform (each web hosting service, like email, databases, site hosting CP, disk space, DNS, statistics, etc., is being handled by an independent group of hosting servers in a cluster). This is a circumstance EVERY cPanel web hosting supplier on the Globe will have immense troubles with, since cPanel is a one-server based website hosting environment (each hosting service, such as mail, databases, web hosting CP, disk storage, DNS, stats, etc., is being handled by one and the same web server), cPanel is not open source (hence the cPanel-based web page hosting companies are unable to add additional functionality and handle it the way they want it) and there is no open source file platform (they have to construct their own file system), which is at the bottom of any cloud web hosting service. Let's go back to the shared hosting plans, which are powered by an authentic clustered web page hosting solution. With a shared web page hosting package, each client pays just for his/her package, thus retaining the webspace hosting price really low (because a lot of users utilize the same web hosting server). To cut a long story short, a shared hosting package, which is hosted on a clustered web hosting solution, allows you to pay just for the reserves that you indeed need, escaping a scenario where you pay for a feature-rich web hosting account that you cannot really utilize, or for a low-end web site hosting account that cannot handle your site. The possibility to upgrade your account from one package to another with only 2 clicks grants you the flexibility to commence with a low-end plan and upgrade as your web page expands. In this way, you save capital that you can expend on promoting the site while it is still brand new. Each site hosting package furnished by 'Hardball Hosting' boasts an online website building tool and more than 40 popular script-driven platforms such as WordPress, Joomla, Zen Cart and Moodle that will save you hundreds of dollars for web page design services. 'Hardball Hosting' furnishes shared hosting plans in several different regions around the Globe. There is one data center in Chicago covering the United States of America and Canada; 2 European data centers - in Britain and in Scandinavia; and another one in Australia, which encompasses the Asia-Pacific. Hence, nearly the entire Earth is encompassed to present you and your web page's visitors with a steady and dependable web space hosting service at a convenient location. All in all, the shared hosting services provided 'Hardball Hosting' are very well stocked and are available at a cut-rate price (starting from $8.75 for the Business plan).

Dedicated Servers

In survivingyourcurrent.com's opinion, enormous websites such as social networks, community and business web portals or famous online shops with 1000s of customers call for a much more powerful web site hosting environment. It appears that the chaps from 'Hardball Hosting' have come to the same conclusion too. To satisfy its clients' needs, 'Hardball Hosting' provides a number of dedicated web servers that can handle millions of daily hits. That estimation is based on the hardware specifications the dedicated hosting servers come with: multi-core processors, up to four gigabytes of RAM, 2000 gigabytes of disk space and Gigabit NICs will definitely guarantee the quick and stable performance of any type of website. According to 'Hardball Hosting', the original hardware specs can be upgraded for more resource-requiring websites. We, from survivingyourcurrent.com, think that all dedicated server plans supplied by 'Hardball Hosting' are also suitable for starting a hosting reseller business as each hosting server comes with free-of-cost invoicing software and a fee-free domain reseller account. Sadly, the dedicated hosting servers offered by 'Hardball Hosting' are all unmanaged. We, at survivingyourcurrent.com, deem this a minor weak point, which can be corrected by paying a monthly fee which amounts to $32.00 USD. So, if you require support, the Managed Services upgrade includes a bouquet of supplementary services such as a regular backup, software installation, dedicated web hosting server monitoring and troubleshooting procedures. An array of website hosting CP (CP) GUIs are available with each of the dedicated web servers - Hepsia, cPanel and DirectAdmin. Our (survivingyourcurrent.com's) forecast is that the exceptional drag and drop File Manager added in the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel will probably make the utilization of any FTP software program pointless. Our (survivingyourcurrent.com's) conclusion is that the dedicated servers furnished by 'Hardball Hosting' don't seem to be very inexpensive (still the Hepsia web site hosting Control Panel and the unmetered hosted domain name quotas will doubtlessly make you smile), beginning from $145.00 for the Xeon Scalable 8c package.
